Between 1780 and 1830, British writers experimented with radical politics, escapes into nature,  and flights into the realms of the beautiful and sublime, leaving behind works full of dangerous ideas. We will read poetry by Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Keats, and Byron as well as prose works by Paine, Wollstonecraft, Burke, and Austen in order to trace some of these fierce and magnificent currents of literary art and thought.
